A Comedy of Errors in the park, Ottawa, August

Canada just looves Shakespeare. Every city and town seems to have a Shakespeare festival. Throughout the summer, the Company of Fools performs Shakespeare in neighborhood parks throughout Ottawa. This year was A Comedy of Errors, which is a very silly and slight play. But it is a great play for kids of all ages and I laughed throughout the performance. The Company just set up their stage and away they go -- no amplification at all. The costumes were just brilliant as was the acting. The audience seemed to be all locals with several just walking from their homes. No tickets -- a donation hat was carried around after the show. A tradition that goes back to the magic plays of medieval times and beyond. Highly recommended!!
